THE SOUND OF SILENCE:

THE SOUND OF SILENCE:
 
I never knew what loneliness was
Until this past year.
Not having anyone to converse with
Brings on many fears.
 
I usually can face my fears,
That's how I get by.
But the "Sound of Silence"
Oh! how many tears I cry.
 
I used to listen to this song,
Not really listening to the words.
Now it's a different story,
Which is totally absurd.
 
There is much truth in the lyrics,
Should you listen carefully.
But having been laid up  for a few days,
I wholeheartedly agree.
 
I'm not full of self pity,
As there is folk always worse off than yourself.
I have the beauty of mother nature and the beach,
Which indeed is much wealth.
 
But it's this blessed loneliness,
Each and every day.
If only I could belong to my family again.
Each night that's what I pray.
 
I wish you all a happy week-end,
Hope the weather will be fine.
All being well I can get out again,
To write you a happier tale.

  3. The young ones are neutral when they come of age. There is more than just hope there, Yvonne! You'll certainly get your wish, Ma'am!
